Online gaming – safety tips for parents!

Gaming is fun! It can inspire children and adults to be creative and teach us many things in a playful way. At the same time, gaming can also be one of the most challenging things to tackle in parenting, be it in terms of setting rules or making sure that one's child is safe online. For this reason, we partnered with the Swedish Gaming Association, PRIVO and Surfa Lugnt, an organization for online safety, to provide parents with tips on how to stay involved in their children’s online activities.

Welcome to Jorvik!

Star Stable is an exciting online game where friendship, mystery, and adventure are waiting to be explored on the fictional island of Jorvik. Together with their very own horse, players become a part of an epic story as they discover Jorvik's magical world from horseback.

Give it a go and experience Star Stable together with your child!

How we work with safety in the game...

At Star Stable, it is our #1 priority to always maintain a safe, secure, and fun environment for all our players. Here are a few examples of the ways we work with security in the game:

  • To get access to the game, all players are required to accept our Terms and Conditions. If players break those Terms and Conditions, they risk being banned from the game. Have a look at our in-game rules!
  • The in-game chat is monitored by Crisp Thinking. The tool uses automatic filtering and flagging of unsuitable chat behavior, which is then followed up on and investigated by our experienced agents. More about our automated chat monitoring!
  • Star Stable treats player information with great care and respect. We do not and will never share any personal information or account details of any kind with third parties.

Safety is always our #1 priority! We work hard to maintain a safe and reliable gaming experience for our players.

And what you as parents can do

The in-game chat allows your child to talk to and work together with other players—solving quests and making new friends. Take time to sit down with your child, get familiar with the game and talk about how to interact with others online. Explain to your child to always be careful when communicating with someone they do not know.

Star Stable requires that all players treat one another with kindness and respect. If your child has been treated badly by another player, don't hesitate to contact us! Our customer support is always available and continually works to ensure that our players are safe and have fun! Contact our customer support

  • Remind your child to never give out any personal information such as their name, address, or telephone number to other players.
  • Make sure your child keeps their log-in information private, including their password. Remind your child to not share log-in and password with friends, not even their best friend.
  • Remind your child to always tell you if another player asks for their name, if they are alone, or where they live. There is no reason for anyone in the game to ask these questions.

Ask

Ask your child about the game, how it works, and what your child thinks about it. Show interest in the games your child likes, and ask if your child plays with others, if the games are fun, or if there is anything your child is uncomfortable with.

Talk

Even in the most fun games things can happen that your child might need to talk about. Remind your child to always meet other players with kindness and respect and explain that what you do or say online is just as meaningful and real as what you do or say at home or at school.

Play

Games should be entertaining, and playing is fun! It's never too late for you as an adult to start playing yourself. As a bonus, it can even give you a deeper understanding of what your child is interested in and what they think is fun.
